The young staff were most polite, cheerful, helpful and friendly with time for a conversation. Mainly Nama local workforce with some colleagues relocating from Zimbabwe. Sleeping huts natural stone and thatch blended unobtrusively into stunning landscape. If not too expensive in electricity, a small fridge in room would be helpful.

From the donkey cart experience to the friendly staff and the honesty bar at the beautiful swimming pool, you are constantly (pleasantly) surprised at Canyon Village. The only negative was that we did not stay long.

This is really a hidden gem in the desert. Very good rooms with excellent dinning. Close to the Fish River Canyon. In fact the closest lodge to this world renowned attraction. Very good service from all the staff. The donkey cart that takes your luggage to your room is really nice. Sun downers on the hill is great.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Canon Village lies at the foot of a sweeping rock face in Gondwana Canon Park. Well-appointed cottages in the Cape Dutch style afford views of the vast canyon scenery. The thatched main building is built right into the massive granite boulders and houses a restaurant and cosy bar. With the famous Fish River Canyon just 20 km away the village is a perfect starting point for exploring the canyon. Dozens of murals depict the history and culture of the Bondelswart Nama, the earlier inhabitants of this area. Relish the peace and quiet and enjoy the views at the 'pool with a view'. ... more   less
